Morris Peterson led a class of five inducted into the Michigan State Athletics Hall of Fame on Thursday. The Flint Northwestern alumni was inducted along with former MSU football player and coach Henry Bullough, hockey players Kip and Ryan Miller and volleyball player Jenna Wrobel.
The first non-starter ever to earn first-team All-Big Ten honors, Peterson developed into one of the all-time greats in Michigan State history. Peterson earned 2000 Big Ten Player of the Year, All-American and Most Outstanding Player honors while helping lead MSU to two Final Fours and the 2000 National Championship.
Peterson is one of just eight players in Spartan history with 1,500 points and 600 rebounds, and ranks 10th in career made 3-point field goals (146).
"To be inducted into the Michigan State Athletics Hall of Fame is unbelievable," said Peterson. "I'm grateful and blessed to go down in the hall of fame. I can't even put it into words."
